Five Composers You Should Know
November 11, 2009
Courtesy of Chris Rickwood comes these composers:
- Nadia Boulanger: Composer most well know for the students she taught and mentored.
- Edgar Varese: The “Father of Electronic Music”
- John Chowning: discovered FM synthesis which became the first real voice for the PC through the AdLib and Soundblaster cards.
- Tetsuya Mizuguchi: Game designer that pushed the use of music as a game mechanic. Creator of Rez.
For good measure, I am adding my favorite:
- Bobby Prince: Creator of the excellent soundtracks to Wolfenstein 3D, Doom and Quake.
